Welcome to My Personal Page
Please join me in my efforts to support the Sjögren’s Foundation! I have been suffering with Sjögren’s since 2003 and my symptoms continue to get worse.
Sjögren’s is the second most prevalent rheumatic autoimmune disease striking as many as four million Americans making it three times more common than lupus and multiple sclerosis. Despite its prevalence, Sjögren’s still remains relatively unknown.
Together we can make a difference and impact the future of Sjögren's!
What is Sjögren’s? (SHOW-grins)
Sjögren’s is a devastating disease in which the body’s immune system attacks the moisture-producing glands. Along with symptoms of dryness it can affect any body organ or system.
Founded in 1983, the Foundation provides patients with practical information and coping strategies that minimize the effects of Sjögren's. In addition, the Foundation is the clearinghouse for medical information and is the recognized national advocate for Sjögren's.
The Foundation's mission is to:
• Support Sjögren’s patients and their loved ones through education, resources and services
• Provide credible resources and education for healthcare professionals
• Serve as the voice for all Sjögren’s patients through advocacy and awareness initiatives
• Lead, encourage and fund innovative research projects to better understand, diagnose and treat
Please support me in helping to reach this goal by a making a donation today. Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure and is the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts!
Thank you in advance for your support!
